What I Use To Shoot Videos

New Primary Camera
I just got this camera very recently and it has been incredible. It's mirrorless so it is very light-weight and compact. The flip screen and great autofocus makes it great for content creation and filming yourself. This is my first camera that shoots in 4K! (Other than my GoPro and 360 camera but those don't count)

Canon 6D Mark II
Until recently, this was my primary camera for over 5 years. It's great for vlogging because it has a flip screen and excellent autofocus. Its full-frame sensor makes it great for shooting in low-light. I would highly recommend this camera for intermediate to professional shooters.

Everyone always asks me how I get those insane ultra-wide spherical 360 shots. This camera takes the wildest-looking shots and makes the selfie stick completely invisible. This camera is a hack to viral videos.

Emart Softbox Photography Lighting Kit
You do NOT need to spend an arm and a leg on a studio lighting setup. Mine cost $130 for two large softbox lighting rigs. This is all I use to light my greenscreen videos.

SLOW DOLPHIN Photo Video Studio 10 x12ft
A smaller green screen would work as well but I like to have the option of having more space for full body shots, etc. This screen is pretty big (10 ft. x 12 ft.) but I love it and use it for every single video.

Rode VideoMic Pro+
This is yet another tool that I have owned for around 5 years and it has never done me wrong. This mic turns off when the camera turns off so it doesn't lose battery. It also turns on when the camera does so you don't have to remember to manually do it every time you want to shoot something. It has a rechargeable battery and it lasts SO long. (seriously... I think I charge mine like once a year)

Waterproof Action Camera
I've linked the most recent GoPro (the 10) even though I use the 6 still. If you want a GoPro, just get the latest one. The quality and features will be very worth it. I will be upgrading soon as well. I've linked a bundle because, unlike most other cameras, accessories for action cameras are crucial. I don't use my GoPro too often personally but whenever I need a crispy, 4K underwater shot, it is my go-to camera.

Traveling Editing Laptop
Although I do most of my editing on a desktop at home, when I'm traveling, this beast of a laptop is my go-to.

Neewer Ring Light Kit
Ring lights are one of the most versatile types of lighting. Whether you are live streaming, taking photos, need extra lighting on a green screen, etc. a ring light is a must-have. I use mine almost every day.
